Top 100 ‘Completely Legal’ Comedy Tweets of 2022

A lot happened on Twitter this year. Elon Musk threatened to buy it, then got sued into actually buying it for a whopping US $44 billion. He entered Twitter HQ with a sink in the run-up to the sale, to quite literally play out a ‘let that sink in’ joke. He declared that “comedy is now legal on Twitter” and then went on a rampage banning accounts that parodied him or famous brands. He also un-banned Kanye, then had to ban him again because of the rapper’s completely predictable anti-Semitic tweets.

Musk was (and still is) getting roasted by a lot of people, including Stephen King, on the ‘hellsite’ he paid so much money for. Clearly, he doesn’t really get the platform he just bought. Had he known better, he’d leave Twitter just the way it is, for the sake of his own sanity. Like most things on this planet, Twitter is a mess, but it’s a fun mess. If you put aside the bots, the right-wing mobs, the fan wars and Musk himself, the website still has some of the funniest people tweeting out some real gold. For free!

Here are some of the best tweets this year:
